Will's Pick for October 24, 2019: Bauer FlyLite and 2X Team Composite Sticks
When the stick was released, I noticed my college teammates quickly switching to the new FlyLite or 2X Team sticks. I tried the FlyLite out and instantly appreciated the overall lightness of it. It weighs just 390 grams (senior version), so you really feel comfortable going up and down the ice. The XE Taper geometry helps keep the weight down, but also allows for stable puck movement.
When I started shooting, the low kick point was apparent instantly. I was ripping shots with velocity, maintaining the precision I desire when unloading the puck.
I've officially switched to the new Bauer Vapor sticks. The 2X Team stick provides many of the same features but is built for the performance-level player. Bauer outdid themselves with this batch of sticks.
Stay tuned as we release a staff pick every week!
